Race For Hope was founded in 2004 when Carleen Taylor made a promise to her friend Peggy that she would help her raise awareness that colorectal cancer occurs in those under 50 years old. Peggy was diagnosed when she was 42 years old. Peggy passed away at 45 years old only three weeks before the first race.
Tragically, after 12 years of warning others about this cancer in the under-50 population, Carleen's 22-year-old son Connor was diagnosed in February 2016. He passed away at the age of 23 in September 2016. He was misdiagnosed for months due to his age.
This is a 5k run/walk and 1-mile walk. There will be a short kids fun dash before the 5k begins.
How will you dress your derriere for the dash?
